You're not the man you used to be
I can tell that you still miss her
Mistress, lover, friend or fool
All offer you a shoulder.
Behind your back they're running scared
One look can show a hundred words
I think you're really searching now
While you glare and stumble on
The days they are escaping you.
If you reach a junction soon
You can ask for my direction.
Still if it's dark inside your room
There's no chance of my connection.
There's no chance of my connection.

I like this cover art.
Nope.

Bill is pulling out the old ones!  Love it!
This seems to be an RP rarity. With the ease of Spotify, I can now check these guys out. Fun!
Great tune.. I like it!  Has a lot of layers in instrument and voice.
GOOD!
A little too country/swamp rockish for my tastes.
Rated a 4, but i didn't find this acceptable...
Even romeotuma covered his ears.......

Bill, next time you're going to play this one go ahead and kick me in the balls instead, and we'll call it even. 
Melody at the end = "I'm in the mood for a melody, I'm in the mood for a melody, I'm in the mood..."

Rhythm and key are totally off... but the melody is there. 
well that was....forgettable.

How about this? Let's stop trying to put music in little pigeonholes ("oh, it sounds a bit like Leon Russell with overtones of Kate Smith") but how about 2 categories - "Good" and "Bad"? I've found the spectrum of either of these range from Jazz to Country and Rock and all things in between and around them, and beyond. Take down the walls. Stop the brain-numbing record store categorization. This is becoming the death of music. If you don't fit one category, then you won't get played on Clear Channel. But no so here on RP, thankfully.

Rant over.
 

well you arent leaving much of a reason for their to be a radio paradise blog now, are you?

That's because they aren't wailing like a fat girl for her lost unicorn.
Sorry, don't get the negative comments. Great band.
:wall: Sorry about my ignorance, but what the hell is this? is terrible!!
Hey! R those girls as pretty as The Corrs sisters? :angel:
This would be "uber hot" live.
Very Rocking Tune!
Yeeee Haaaaww. In a bad way. :stop:

Way below RP standards. I've heard every lick, beat and harmony performed much better by way better musicians. Over-produced and under-talented. Oh, and I didn't like the lyrics either.
I'm feeling a bizarre Roxette vibe with this song. Na na na na na...
radio paradise, where you hear music that no one else plays...and in the case of this song...you learn why.
Kev's right, kids. MACARENA!!!! :dance:

Hmm, my first association was Dire Straits. Untill the voice started of course. Quite acceptable ...
These guys are good! Nice variety of sounds on their songs.

Nice segue after Hornsby. :clap:

If you think this sounds like country, then you must not listen to much country music. I happen to be a big country fan (real country, not that hybrid pop/country junk) and I dont see it in this song. However this tune is enjoyable to a degree.

A good ECLECTIC station should play a wide variety of the best including country -rock which is hip right now especially bands like Son Volt. Traditional country is in cult/underground/vogue status right now as well, especially Johnny Cash.
